The two teams met back in 1998 at the “maximir” stadium in a game ended with a draw. The result took Dynamo (named Croatia back then) to the final 8 of the Champions League. After the huge victory in London against Arsenal they have the chance of making a big step towards the qualification to the next stage.
Olympiakos face, tomorrow, a huge challenge. Silva and the "Reds" who trained under torrential rain at "Maximir" show ready to cope. The Croats from their part are doing everything they can to take down the statements presenting them as favorites and it’d be a surprise if they win. For Dynamo the "Maximir" game is a final.
The absence of Cambiasso might not be changing Silva’s plan as he admitted in a press conference but certainly reduces the options in midfield. The Portuguese has read Dynamo's disadvantages. The lineup looks obvious, but Silva has shown so far that he knows how to hide his tactics.
Most likely that will start the game with Roberto, Omar, Siova, Mazouakou, Milivogevic, Kasami, Fortunis, Seba, Pardo and Ideye. Da Costa for the center of defense seems to be an outsider, Salino as a left-back is also considered.
